Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).

It wont turn on!

If you were charging it with your USB cord, you have to keep the computer turned on the whole time it's charging, otherwise, it will be losing it's charge.

My JVC Mp3 player wont start at all I charged it and everything

Does the computer recognise it when plugged into the USB port? If so, you could always try a Firmware re-load using the disc which should have come with the player - or obtained from their website. If you don't have a back-up copy of your music, make one first 'cos it'll all be lost during the re-load.

Denon AVR-X2400H Intermittent Protection Mode on startup Apologies for the incoming wall of text. Whenever my Denon AVR-X2400H receiver has been off for several hours most regularly in the morning, it will often go into protection mode on start. This has been happening for months. After anywhere from a minute to 20 minutes, after many restarts/moving the unit around/swearing, it will start normally and function without issue for hours until the next long period of being off. It is the dreaded PRT: DC. During this period of protection mode, it will fail to start even if I disconnect everything but power. I have swapped the power cables, tried different outlets, and let it get plenty of airflow though if it were temp related it would be a different code / not happen on first startup. I even opened up the unit, disassembled it and looked for moisture/scorch marks/loose cables before re-assembling. I have performed a couple factory resets over the last couple months. I assume the intermittent startup nature hints at a failing but not failed part, but am not sure what to replace. I have access to an engineer friend / multimeter if helpful. It is well out of warranty, but there's a part of me that wants to believe it can be salvaged, especially given current AVR prices. Other things I have tried include leaving it in ECO/network standby. There was a period where spinning the source wheel on startup would cause the AVR to lock up but not trigger protection, after which unplugging/replugging would allow it to start normally. Not exactly scientific.
